Child Sexual Exploitation and Trafficking

Child sexual exploitation (CSE) is a type of sexual abuse in which children are sexually exploited and groomed for money, power or status. Often the child will not understand what has happened to them and may think the offender/s is/are a friend or boyfriend, however the offender will manipulate and groom the child into these activities. Trafficking is the trade of humans, most commonly for the purpose of sexual slavery, forced labour or commercial sexual exploitation for the trafficker or others. Both trafficking and CSE are illegal in the UK and if you or someone you know is affected then report it and get support from the links below.
